Heading out early tomorrow for our trip to california. We'll be leaving while the stars are still sparkling, toting our tent and sleeping bags for camping, and excited to be catching the train to the airport and the other side of the country. I think our minds will be a lot lighter the moment we step foot from our house tomorrow ~ that's what I love about travel. The alert senses. The missing of home. The curiosity. How things seem more special than usual. I'm bringing one film camera and one polaroid camera, and lots of film for both. A few paperbacks, a good appetite, my journal, and some drawstring bags for collecting rocks and other natural finds. Our travel plans are to see what comes our way!
